It all started in 1990 at age of 7 when magician Matthew King was fooled by his first "live" magic effect on the "pre-existing" toy isle of a grocery store. He was captured by the concept of creating a different aspect of reality for people, and that even the most brilliant of minds could be deceived with certain principles (and hours of practice and dedication). He spent countless hours reading magic books from the library, originally to learn the secret which fooled him, and enjoyed learning what magic has to offer so much that, by age 9, he was cutting his older brother in half (using a refrigerator box version he constructed himself). His first professional performance was at the age of 12, and, by the mere age of 17 (in 2000), he was accepted as a member of the Magic Castle's Junior Society. Performing for corporate and private events, and collecting and practicing over the decades, magician Matthew King has the skills and material required to guarantee your clients/guests enjoy themselves and your entertainment is a success.
